    Hello all.

A message regarding our club’s anniversary celebration. We’ve decided to have a ‘celebration day’ for the club. This will be at the flying field, on Monday, 4th June (Bank holiday Monday)

   There will be BBQ’s, gazebo’s/marquee on site, as well as toilet facilities. Also we’re having a raffle for a complete new Arising Star plane, with all servo’s & a JEN47 engine, just add your receiver & fly! Tickets are just £1, available from Stuart in advance or on the day.

 

 As the club was first formed in 1945, maybe it would be nice to see some aircraft from that era. I’m sure lots if not all of you have a warbird somewhere! Even if you don’t want to fly, you’re welcome to bring your models, whether complete or not, for display to everyone. This is going to be a fantastic day for all members, families and friends, so please spread the word, and invite as many people as you like!

 

Having checked the all important weather, MET office say that the beginning of the month may see the hottest temperatures of the year so far, and whilst it’s not a given, it certainly looks promising.

 

Bear in mind anyone flying on the day must hold valid BMFA insurance and the models must be noise tested by MGMEC to 80db or below. Site will be open at 9am, Flying will commence from 10am till 6pm for i.c models, 10am till dusk for electric models. Obviously, there will be no admission charges, & any dogs must be kept on a lead at all times within the boundaries of the field. Bring your own BBQ food, we’ll supply the rest. Come on down, let’s make this a Diamond Jubilee to remember!

 

Happy Landings

A reminder that our Anniversary Celebrations are now only a week away! The event will be at the flying field, on Bank holiday Monday,4th June. Stuart has managed to get the loan of a decent sized (9m x 3m) marquee, courtesy of Castle Bromwich scouts, and we also have several gazebos, so is all looking good. The plan is to have a display area with some of these, for models to be shown but not necisarily flown. The perfect opportunity to show us your projects and builds! We will have toilet facilities on site, & several BBQ's on the go, just bring your grub! We will provide everything else you need. 

Also, dont forget the raffle for the Arising Star, complete and ready to fly with J'EN 47 engine, just add your RX/TX. Tickets are just £1, available from Stuart in advance or on the day.

No pre-booking required for displaying or flying models, but if you're displaying a large model, as I know several of you will be, might be an idea to let us know in advance so we can make sure there is sufficient space under cover.

This is a big step for the club, and hopefully the first of many where we can all get together, celebrate and FLY!

Bring your families & friends and lets make this a day to remember.

Help! We are in desperate need of a couple of gazebo's for Monday. Unfortunately, there has been an oversight by the Scouts which means the 9m marquee we had planned to borrow is not available. Can anybody help out with a gazebo or two? Collecting it is no problem, please let us know ASAP by email or phone

I'll second that, let's just hope the weather doesn't put paid to all the work.
What's the score if it's still wet, all huddle under the gazebos eating soggy sausages or postpone it?

Hi Rob. Still going ahead as planned, rain according to met office at the airport will cease at around 6am. Be prepared for wet grass, but fingers crossed should be good for flying, if not, we'll eat ourselves to death under the gazebo's!

Just to let everyone know, despite today's weather, the forecast for Monday is ok, so we are still going ahead as planned with the event. Big thanks to everyone who has helped with contributions of Gazebo's, BBQ's, and everything else, it's going to be a great day! We've got tea/coffee facilities, everything for the BBQ's, just bring some grub if you like. (There will be some spare I'm sure, as Paul is on holiday!) If anyone needs directions on the day, feel free to contact us, if you need a mobile number for someone on site, use the contacts section on this website, and we'll get one email straight back tonight.. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Wow! What can I say? what a fantastic day. Huge thank you to everyone involved. Special mention must go to that lovely young fella Stuart, and his partner Marie, without you today would not have happened. Also big thanks to Bob & Matt, Laurie, & Andy, all of whom were at the field at an ungodly hour this morning to help set everything up. I'm completely knackered now, but very,very happy, the whole day was a success, even the weather gods smiled on, by mid afternoon we had zero wind and sunshine! Will put as many pics and video's as I can on here in due course, but now, I need a big mug of tea!
